 Trenton Health and Rehabilitation Center is a part of Grace Healthcare, founded in 1997 to manage nursing care and rehabilitation facilities. Grace Healthcare’s culture is based on a simple but powerful concept. Grace believes in treating residents, family members and employees, as well as business associates and community members, the same as they would wish to be treated. The company motto is “Do the Right Thing”.
 Trenton Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center provides skilled nursing care, rehabilitation and respite care all at one location in West Tennessee. Through Grace Healthcare’s model, Graceful Living, it is the goal that you or your loved one will receive quality, compassionate care by well-trained professionals who serve you from their hearts. Their goal is to provide unique experiences from dining to activities and therapies that support a positive outlook on life.
 Whether you are recovering from hip replacement surgery, a stroke, a recent fall or any other health condition requiring rehabilitation, Trenton Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center offers comprehensive programming designed to meet your needs. Your rehabilitation begins with a clear understanding of your goals and a commitment to return you to the highest possible level of function and independence. The on-site therapists work closely with your physician to develop and deliver an individualized therapy program specific to your needs.
 The skilled nursing services at Trenton Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center generally are designed to follow a hospital stay, either on a short-term or long-term basis. Professional nursing care by a dedicated team focuses on the special needs and concerns of each resident. Consistent and compassionate nursing care makes this center a nursing home through a variety of innovative, comprehensive and interdisciplinary programs.
 Trenton Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center’s quality care with a touch of home is also available to families needing a break in caregiving responsibilities. If only for a weekend or a few weeks, Respite Care residents are provided with a secure healthcare setting.
 Wally Vernon, Administrator of Trenton Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, invites you to call or drop by for more information or to schedule a tour. He can be reached at 731-855-4500.
 Thanks, Trenton Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, for your support of the Chamber and all you do for Gibson County!

Job Openings
Board Member Spotlight

Board Member Name:  Emily Sullivan
Company Name: Gibson Electric Membership Corporation
Position: Vice President, Economic Development & Community Relations
Work Phone: 731-855-4740, ext. 1610

Areas of Expertise:
I work at Gibson EMC, a rural electric cooperative formed in 1936 and currently serving more than 38,000 members over 3,500 miles of line in eight northwest Tennessee counties (Crockett, Dyer, Gibson, Haywood, Lake, Lauderdale, Madison and Obion) and four southwest Kentucky counties (Carlisle, Hickman, Fulton and Graves).  Our corporate office is in Trenton, and member service centers are located in Alamo, Medina, Tiptonville, Trenton and Troy, Tennessee, and in Hickman, Kentucky.   I have 27 years of experience in providing energy solutions to Gibson EMC members, and 17 years in assisting with business retention and expansion efforts. 
Other Interests:
I enjoy music, movies and books, but my favorite moments include leisurely visits with the family, particularly with the grandkids.   
Why did you join the Chamber?
Electric cooperatives all operate according to the same set of core principles and values. Chamber of commerce membership and active participation easily falls under our 7th Cooperative Principle, Concern for Community.  I’m not sure how many decades Gibson EMC has been a member of Greater Gibson County Area Chamber of Commerce, but I suspect membership goes back to its predecessor (Trenton Chamber of Commerce).  I personally believe in the non-profit Chamber of Commerce model as a proven means to attract and grow businesses, and to improve economic climate and quality of life.
Why do you serve on the Board of Directors?
I volunteered with the Chamber for several years and also completed the Gibson County Adult Leadership program before being asked to serve on the board in the early 2000’s.  I returned to the board in 2015, and currently I’m serving in the office of Vice President. It’s an honor for all of us to serve in the policy-making roles of chamber board members, and we take our responsibility very seriously.  It’s also a pleasure to act as advisors to Executive Director Libby Wickersham, and to be able to report that through her leadership our chamber is increasing membership and adding valuable programs throughout a very large geographic area (Yorkville, Kenton, Rutherford, Dyer, Trenton, Gibson, Bradford and Medina).  
Does your business have one of these signs?  If not, call the Chamber Office (855-0973) to find out how you can get yours.
